I have also ordered loads of gorgeous new Christmas stamps from Stampin Up and will share cards with you once they arrive and I get creative. If you would like an Autumn/Christmas catty, please let me know and I shall post one out to you.
I would like to enter the following challenges with this card;
Deep Ocean Challenges – Christmas in July
ABC Challenges – Monochromatic
I would like to apologise for mentioning the “C” word in August, but I really fancied a play with these stamps after I bought them yesterday on a wee jaunt to the craft shop. They have a fantastic sale on with a lot of their wooden stamps and Christmas goodies with 50% off, I may have got a few things and enabled a fellow crafter to buy some of her favourite Penny Black stamps by sending piccies to her via FB…but in my defence they were half price 😉
I used a Papermania 6×6″ Background stamp(hubby kindly donated an A4 sheet of perspex for me to use as an acrylic block as my largest one is 5×7″ eek) and stamped onto plain white card, I then distressed with Vintage Photo DI. I stamped out the new Christmas Tree stamp I got and fussy cut it, jeez my fingers were sore after that, I had scalpel cramps lol. I used 1mm foam pads to give the card some dimension. I wanted to keep the card fairly simple, so added a ticket sentiment, some ribbon and some card candi.
